Skype Insists It Is Not For Sale; IPO Another Question
W. David Gardner writes in TechWeb News:
VoIP provider Skype Technologies is actively seeking to quell rumors that the company is for sale.
In an email exchange with TechWeb, a public relations representative for the company in the U.S, said flatly: “Skype is not for sale.”
The “for sale” rumors have been circulatinging in recent days along with the report that the Luxembourg-based firm has hired investment banking firm Morgan Stanley & Co. to examine its options including floating an IPO.
Skype did not comment beyond saying the firm is not for sale.
